1. What's Included in This Update
 
This update includes a new Parallels Virtuozzo Containers for Linux 4.7 kernel (2.6.32-042stab092.3) based on the Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.5 kernel (2.6.32-431.20.3.el6). The new kernel introduces a security fix.
 
2. Bug Fixes
 
- On a Hardware Node with the kernel 2.6.32-042stab092.1 or 2.6.32-042stab092.2, Containers running Ubuntu could fail to restart and would remain in the 'mounted' state. (#PSBM-28104)
  The same issue could also be triggered by an unprivileged user in any Container, resulting in a memory leak and a potential DoS attack.
 
All users are highly advised to install this update.
 
3. Obtaining the Update
 
You can download and install the update using the vzup2date utility included in the Parallels Virtuozzo Containers for Linux 4.7 distribution set.
